Home away from home is what i would describe this place !! It was a perfect getaway with exact interiors as shown in the pics !! The hospitality of the staff was outstanding. Being sightly away from the city we never missed on anything !! Their barbecue is a must try. Food preparation and presentation was always alluring ! Be prepared to get spoilt once there.. keep it up guys !
Tastefully done Villa, 30 minutes from Haldwani. Manish, the owner was very cooperative throughout the process and has kept the villa exactly as shown in the photographs. The location is perfect - The deck outside the villa is where we ended up spending most of our time. Had the villa been located a few meters away from the main road, it would have been an added advantage.
A great place and a cooperative owner has unparalleled staff to look after the guests. Manoj, the property manager and Bhagatsing, the chef are the real reason I would give this property the highest rating. Manoj is an amazing individual - a local young fellow is always smiling and ready to make the guests comfortable. His sincere efforts to meet the guests' demands and the food served by magical chef is what makes this place different from other lot....... GREAT!!!
Beautifully placed with super view and serenity.
Hospitality is way beyond imagination
Home away from home feeling
The Cross winds villa is about 20 odd kms from Nainital. It is the perfect weekend getaway. It takes approximately 1.5 hours from Pantnagar Airport to reach this place or about 45 minute drive from Kathgodam station. It is a beautiful villa, complete with all the modern amenities, and the service is amazing. Food is delicious and fresh and is as per your preferences.
It is the perfect location to relax. The house is located in a peaceful location with lots of options to while away time. If you’re a reader like me, you will find umpteen interesting books tucked away in a corner in the hall. There is a TT table, nets to pay badminton and football if you so wish. The house comes with a deck, and an option to barbeque on special request.
A special mention for Manoj, the guy who manages the place. He ensured that we had an amazing time. He made sure that all of us were comfortable and our accommodated all our requests with a smile.
Travelled with friends and family in March 2017.
Crosswinds has been the best luxury HomeStay by far in all my travels in India so far. Built by the owner Manish, surely with great personal interest and an amazing eye for detail. Its a place for everyone - elders, youngsters and kids alike. What really makes it work is the amazing staff Manish has, shephearded by the Caretaker Manoj. The chef (Bhagat Singh) dishes out the most amazing food, practically anything you may ask for. Manoj and team make you feel at home and really go out of the way to make it a memorable stay.
The faciltities (6 rooms) are top-of-the-line. The sun deck and garden facing the mountains add extraordinary charm to crosswinds. A Bose music system plays out in the lawns, as it does inside. There is enough to keep kids busy with game sets, TV and Books besides of course, food of their liking. The barbeque (payable additionally) is quite elaborate and Bhagat Singh does put up a great show of fresh veggies beside the carnivore fare.
Crosswinds is ideal for groups of 10-15 people (as we were) who would like to spend 2-3 nights (or more) away from the mad rush of crazy hillstations and yet enjoy the weather and fresh air in the Hills. Their charges are 4 star rates however the service is 5 star.
Highly recommended as a family/friends getaway from NCR. Thank you Manish, Manoj, Bhagat Singh, Arvind, Sonu and all other staff at Crosswinds. We made great memories thanks to you.
Perfect getaway for us this Holi 2017. Villa is 18 odd kms from Nanital. And believe me that's the beauty. You get very lovely views of hills around both in the day time and evenings. The place is very well planned. All rooms are spacious with attached balconis. You even have bose speakers installed outside in the garden. Most of the rooms have great views with all necessities taken care of. The outside deck and bar areas are very nice. Now the hospitality part is also excellent . Be it the team of Manoj or the food. Food was really nice be it Indian or continental. Plus they served us very nice deserts every night. Overall The show was very well managed. Also you have the option of bonfire/barbeque during the evening. Ideal for people travelling in groups.
I stayed at crosswinds with my friends and family in Jan 2017 and for me, this getaway turned out to be the one I'd cherish. Absolutely loved how everything was fantastic: be it the finger licking food (which my kids dreamt of for some time after we were back :p) , the quality of the rooms, amenities, or entertainment for the kids, everything was well taken care of. Also the helping staff was very courteous and ensured our stay was satisfactory . All in all, I'd highly recommend you to go for it :D
